Char Siew (Chinese BBQ Pork)

So most of us are pretty well acquainted with this Chinese BBQ Pork aka Char Siew (or Cha Siu) that gained international popularity. It would frequently make an appearance with dim sum, but is also often paired with rice or noodles. Every country seems to have a slightly different version of it, but the main…

Soft and Fluffy Tri-Coloured Milk Bread

I’ve always loved Asian style soft, fluffy milk bread, and with the current lockdown in place, what better to do than make your own? This recipe doesn’t require a bread machine and the dough is simple and easy to knead. It is also completely optional to colour them, especially if you’re not a fan of…

Toblerone Fudge Brownies with Crinkly Crust

“Brownies are the easiest to make.” That’s what they say… and I do¬†agree to an extent. These bad boys usually don’t need any creaming or whipping. Just mix it all up in a bowl and bake it in the oven! Poof! You’re done… also on the condition that you didn’t try to change¬†the recipe. Now,…
